Logitech had recently unveiled the Logitech G PRO gaming headset over a video call, and one of those units made its way into my possession for testing. It’s an exciting new product adding a new layer of quality audio to a very affordable, if not intriguing, price point of $80. Here is another look at the Logitech G PRO gaming headset.

The G PRO aims for subtlety in an all-black color palette. With a hybrid mesh PRO-G audio driver that has noise isolation, a two meter cable with a volume rocker and clip, and compatibility with multiple console platforms and PC/Mac, the team perfected the sound quality and produced a headset that produces clear treble and a nice sounding bass. The headband on the headset is made of a nylon product, TR90, with glass fiber reinforced nylon at its joints. The slider is stainless steel, adding a level of polish to the headset and making it not look cheap. The ear and head pads are leatherette, with an alternative included. The ear cups rotate and allow the headset to lay flat. Headsets not doing that in this day and age are missing out on an overlooked and highly useful feature.

Moving to the microphone, it’s a cardioid unidirectional pro microphone that is 4 millimeters in size, with an arm that allows full-range flex. The key here is that it’s detachable, which makes it wonderful to add into my bag for those study sessions. I love the idea of a detachable microphone because I prefer that subtlety of a simple headset that isn’t broadcasting that I’m using a gaming headset to listen to music.

I used this headset for several weeks over the course of some traveling and studying, with a lot game play during those nice breaks. The headset doesn’t heat up the ears, with the material of the ear cups allowing air to leave. It’s also light on the head without making the head feel heavy, something previous headsets were guilty of. There’s no LED lighting on it, just a simplified logo and the PRO label on the side. The ear cups are wide. I have somewhat big ears, and the ears have a lot of room to move around.

The sound quality, for the price point of $88, is actually fantastic. I’ve used various Logitech headsets, including their premium G933, which is my daily driver back home, and I actually think that this one plays a lot better, with far more comfort on the headset. It picks up the ambient noises in games, and can block out all of the other noises that are going on around me. It does a fantastic job of immersing me in my environment.

The Logitech G PRO is out now for $88.99, and is a masterclass in its price tier against all headsets. It’s comfortable, subtly professional without screaming “gamer,” has next to zero setup, and presents an incredibly clear sound quality that can put some higher cost headsets to shame. It’s an easy choice to make – this headset has just booted my G933 as a daily driver. If you’re looking for a headset that gets its job done without the RGB or fancy bells and whistles, this is a must-have for your collection.
